A former 16th-century farmhouse surrounded by vineyards, Locanda Le Piazze is now a small, luxurious, boutique hotel 6 km from Castellina in Chianti. Located on a hill, between Florence and Siena, it offers panoramic views of the countryside.
The Locanda's extensive gardens feature an outdoor pool set in an olive grove. On site parking is free.
The simple, individually decorated rooms come with air conditioning, and a flat-screen TV. The minibars are stocked with free mineral water, and the en suite bathrooms are complete with a hairdryer.
The Tavola by Guido Haverkock restaurant offers a variation of traditional Tuscan cuisine, using organic local ingredients. A generous breakfast is served daily.
